Walters named Head Coach for U17

Attack Head Coach Greg Walters has been named a Head Coach for 1 of 3 Team Canada teams participating in the 2022 World U17 Hockey Challenge.

Walters joins Owen Sound native Mark O’Leary (Moose Jaw, WHL) and Bruce Richardson (Blainville-Boisbriand, QUE) as the head coaches of the three Canadian U17 teams – TEAM BLACK, TEAM WHITE, TEAM RED – for the U17 Hockey Challenge set to take place in Langley and Delta, B.C. from Nov. 5-12th.

Having joined the Attack’s coaching staff this past season as Head Coach, Walters went an impressive 34-26-5-3 with a young Attack squad, while also being competitive in a hard fought 7-game playoff series against Flint.

This marks the fourth time Walters has been a coach with Hockey Canada, and the second as head coach. Walters was an Assistant Coach¬†of the 2011 World Jr A Challenge silver medal winning Canada East team, while being the Head Coach in 2012 with Canada East, finishing fourth. Recently Walters was a Guest Coach at the 2019¬†National Men’s Summer U18 Selection Camp.

Walters, along with the other coaches named by Hockey Canada, will also oversee the U17 Development Camp taking place July 10-16 in Calgary. The Attack have 4 prospects heading to the camp, as this will provide a great opportunity for them to both impress their future coach in Owen Sound but also the Hockey Canada brass.
